Hunter town officials attempt to slow development

Oct 02, 2014 6:42 am
Max Oppen is reporting in the Register Star the town of Hunter is considering a nine-month moratorium on land-use applications. During the proposed moratorium, no applications could be processed by the planning or town boards, no approvals can be given, and no action taken on site plan reviews, subdivision laws and lot-line alterations. Approximately 70 mountaintop residents squeezed into town hall to listen and voice their opinions on the pending ban, Tues., Sept. 30. Approval of the temporary building ban calls into question the immediate future for at least two pending ventures, the five-duplex Williamsburg Residential project and Cortina Mountain Estates, a 95-unit subdivision adjacent to the Cortina Mountain Ski Resort. The town currently has moratoria in place to address junkyards and mobile home parks within town limits. Those were approved by the Town Board in February. Public discussion of the proposal is expected to continue Oct. 21. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
